The Lagos state government has established COVID-19 testing centres across the 20 local government areas (LGAs) in the state.

The state government announced the information via its official Twitter handle, on Sunday.

It said the decision to establish the testing sites across the LGAs is geared towards increasing testing capacity in the state.

The government said the centres are meant for those who fit the case definition of COVID-19.

It added that “visit to these centres is strictly by appointment and it’s not for emergency cases”.

“In order to increase COVID-19 testing capacity in Lagos, the State Government has set up sampling stations in the 20 local government areas, for citizens who fit the case definition of COVID-19, to visit and drop samples for testing,” the tweet read.

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced 86 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday evening bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 627.

Lagos has the highest toll, with 376 cases.

While a total 170 patients have been discharged in the country, 21 patients have died from the virus.

Checks by TheCable showed that despite increased COVID-19 testing in Nigeria, the country has tested fewer people than Djibouti, a country with a population of less than 1 million people.

TheCable understands that Nigeria, with only 7,153 people tested as of April 19, has remained one of the worst performers in the world when it comes to COVID-19 testing.

Official figures also show that Ghana, South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia, have carried out more tests than Nigeria has.
